Leave it to Donald Trump to turn the celebration of a Middle East peace plan into an act of aggression against Joe Biden.

On Friday, the president announced that Sudan has agreed to normalize ties with Israel, making it the third Arab state to reach such a U.S.-brokered deal in the last few months, according to the Associated Press.

Although it's a legitimate foreign policy achievement, Trump tried to use the occasion to get Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to trash his Democratic rival.

But Bibi didn't take the bait, probably recognizing that insulting the possible future president wasn't a very statesmanlike thing to do:

Trump: "Do you think Sleepy Joe could have made this deal, Bibi, Sleepy Joe? Do you think he would have made this deal? Somehow I don't think so."

Netanyahu: "Uh ... well ... Mr. President, one thing I can tell you is we appreciate the help for peace from anyone in America."

President Donald Trump followed through on his threat to release unaired footage of his interview with "60 Minutes," just two days after he abruptly cut the appearance short and began criticizing Lesley Stahl, the popular news program's host, on social media.

"Look at the bias, hatred and rudeness on behalf of 60 Minutes and CBS," read a caption beneath his video posted on Facebook Thursday.

Trump appears to grow frustrated during the interview with Stahl's line of questioning as they discuss rising COVID-19 case numbers and unemployment claims.

He spent more than 45 minutes with the journalist but then refused to participate in a "walk and talk" segment that would have also included Vice President Mike Pence, The New York Times reported on Tuesday.

It's unclear if the footage has been edited. "60 Minutes" plans to air the full interview on Sunday.

I found a site that's providing near real-time statistics on how the mail-in and in-person early voting is going:

2020 General Election Early Vote Statistics


The panel at the bottom of the page is very interesting (check all three options).

One interesting statistic is that with 13 days still to go before election day, early voting, counting both returned mail-in ballots and in-person voting, that as a nation, we've already cast 30% of the total votes cast in 2016. And really interesting is that one state, Texas, is already at 60% of their 2016 total.
